Estonia: Identity and Independence

By Jean-Jacques Subrenat; David Cousins et al. | Go to book overview
Save to active project


This collective work is above all indebted to its co-authors for having agreed to write an article, generously give an interview or participate in a discussion, but also for having accepted that their position would be disputed or even reevaluated in the same chapter or elsewhere in the book. It should be added that before making a written contribution, all the co-authors assisted in specifying the book's content through an exchange of views.*

The idea of this book was first discussed in detail with Antoine Chalvin, a true expert on Estonia. The depth of his knowledge and his meticulous approach helped to define the precise bounds of this project. In addition, he agreed to supervise the French edition, overseeing a team of translators assembled for that purpose and also personally translating some of the texts.

Lore Listra provided decisive help to this project. She examined each contribution, suggested improvements and, much as an officer of the watch, who must simultaneously read the map and observe the realities of the voyage, on several occasions helped steer clear of excessive esotericism and redundancies.

Tiia Uibo gave precious help in navigating from the point of departure to the port of final call; Maria Hansar capably substituted for her over several months.

The journey from concept to synopsis also benefited from the views of Toivo Tasa, who is very knowledgeable about contemporary discourse. For his part, Alban Foucher performed very useful documentary research.

Without a publisher, an editor is but a dreamer. After the first detailed presentation made to her, Ly Aunaste brought about the decisive engagement of the publishing house Avita, and Aivar Leštšinsky then ensured, with her, the publication of the Estonian edition.

At this point the initiator of this project wishes to express to all his sincere thanks, while assuming responsibility for any flaws in the concept or execution of the result.
